Simple
  • Well, maybe, but Lem did as mathematicians do: write lengthy, intricate things and then not do a lot. Whereas my little stanza of physics is just a prelude to things that happen later in the lab, and which require a first aid kit at hand.

  • Simple
  • Yeah I would like to see how she reacts when I sum over her delicate wavefunction and square her nasty little probability amplitude.. But I bet she would moan and beg for me to integrate over her infinite intervals, that little slut

  • Flathub has passed 2 billion downloads
  • What about those apps using out of date libraries? Wouldn't that become a security issue - since containers usually aren't that secure, right? And all app developers would have to update their container libraries separately, instead of just updating the system libraries?

  • Sensory secrets of penis and clitoris unlocked after more than 150 years
  • I want you all to read this article and pay very close attention to the exact wordings. Some examples:

    Krause corpuscles — nerve endings in tightly wrapped balls located just under the skin..

    "It’s been hard to get people to work on this because some people have a hard time talking about it"

    Ginty and other sensory biologists have long wanted to study these mysterious neuron balls.

  • Irrational
  • But irrational numbers aren't the same as imaginary numbers. Also, there are irrational imaginary numbers. And quantum physics loves using imaginary numbers. So that sentence in the image is nonsense, right?

  • Could a gaming PC be a good thing in a nursing home?

    Recently talked to a 90+ year old man in a park in front of his nursing home, guy is a former RC plane enthusiast. Can't do anything now because of his age, though. Bored all the time, sitting in the park is his highlight.

    Thinking of donating an old gaming PC that can somewhat run the Microsoft flight simulator. Would that be a good idea? Can the average 80-90 year old use that at all, just speaking sensorically and motor skill wise?

    Are there any other thoughts you have on that idea?

    Does Microsoft have the power to pull the plug on Linux gaming?

    So I'm talking about playing previously Windows-only games on Linux, e.g. via proton.

    I don't know about the libraries etc that are used - is it possible for Microsoft to use some legal voodoo, for example, to suddenly end it all, and make the use of their libraries illegal (if they belong to Microsoft in the first place)?

    Or could there be other ways of interference?

    You randomly get a hold of your colleague's phone. It's unlocked. You don't mind being fired. What sounds do you set as his notification and ring tones?

    I was thinking of something like the Duff Man theme and slapping sounds and moans, but I feel that Lemmy knows better.

    (Obviously, I would start texting and calling him during the next meeting)

    What is it with companies ditching Denuvo?

    I've been reading the same thing a couple of times lately, company x removes Denuvo from game y.

    What is happening? Are we returning to a state of innocence and purity?

    You finally made it

    Alright, your propaganda here over the past months has worked. I want to get into Star Trek. Where do I start? Can I take an abbreviated tour? Or do I need to go to TOS?

    Meta: Requirement to post year of creation?

    Hello, I love this community, but I can't stand it that so many posts don't feature the year that the artwork was made. That's such important information, just to place that piece of art in context. Maybe it can be made a requirement to include the year? What do you think?

    Alexa should react to short, weird sounds like glottal stops

    I think it's silly to speak in full sentences to home assistants, when I really just use 5 commands most of the time.

    It would be snappier to make weird sounds, produced by snapping ones tongue e.g., like some African tribes use in their languages.

    Or any other weird, short sounds.

    It might be more satisfying to use, and probably funnier.

    Also, over the course of a few years this might find its way into everyday spoken language. Which would be wonderfully dystopian and maybe funny.

    Why are there so many apps that could be websites?

    Seriously. I don't want to install something on my phone when the dev is just using a WebView, if that's what it's called. When the app is basically just a website with the browser hidden.

    What's the reason for that? To attach the customer? To sell the app for money? Is there more ad revenue that way? Do you reach more people?

    (Are there any good reasons for it, too? Security, maybe?)

    Is public transport in the USA owned by car makers?

    I once heard that in the middle of 20th century, public transportation in the USA was widely privatized and bought by automotive manufacturers, and then wilfully left to rot, so that people would buy more cars.

    However, I can't find anything backing that up. Do you know whether that's true, and where I can find some sources for that?

    What's an alternative to Spotify that doesn't play you the same fucking songs over and over?

    I am in an intense love-hate relationship with Spotify. It makes good mixes for me, I have found a lot of great bands that way. BUT IT KEEPS REGURGITATING THE SAME SONGS IN THERE. I know about Song Radios and Artist Radios, so please don't recommend those. Smart Shuttle doesn't cut it, either.

    The best thing would be several randomness sliders. One for randomness in bands, the other for randnomness of their songs, one for genres. Please tell me some music service has implemented something like that. I am dying over here.

    Would eating raw human brains make you high?

    With all the hormones and whatnot inside. Dopamine, adrenaline, melatonin, whatever. Also, there's this Hunter S. Thompson bit on the.. pineal gland?

    If it had an effect on you, wouldn't it be a really messed up high, all over the place? With uppers, downers etc mixed? (Not including the emotional implications of eating raw human brains.)

    Play it for the first time now or wait for September?

    Hey there,

    so I was turned off by all the drama at launch and waited until now to buy the game. I hear major changes are going to come soon.

    So do you think it's a better idea to start playing it now, or wait for patch 1.7/2.0?

    Why can I not see posts from federated communities I'm subscribed to?

    Hi, as in title. To drive home the urgency of my question: I subscribed to monster girls on lemmynsfw.com. But I can't see any monster girls here. My disappointment knows no bounds.

    Understanding cross-instance commenting

    So I commented on a post on lemmy.world, and somebody from lemmy.ml replied to my comment.

    I was finally able to reply to their comment in turn by using the reply symbol under their post in my notifications. I couldn't reply before because clicking on their comment took me over to lemmy.ml and I thought I would be able to sign in with my credentials from here and post, but I think I understand now that that isn't possible. Every instance has its own registered users and you can't cross-post, you can only reply on the federated thread on your own instance and wait for it to be federated over to the user from the other side.

    When I look at their post now, my comment shows up on lemmy.ml. So the thread was federated over to lemmy.ml from here, I guess?

    I have not registered on lemmy.ml, just on lemmy.world.

    Did I comment on lemmy.world and it got federated over to .ml?

    Because I can't comment on the post on lemmy.ml, but that's expected I guess, since I'm only registered here.

    Does this make sense?

    Sorry if I'm just blabbering on here, but I'm still a bit confused about how all of this works exactly. Typing this out helps me understand this.

    Is anybody facing similar issues of not quite understanding what they're doing?

    I will attach a screenshot.

    not interesting @lemmy.world sir_pronoun @lemmy.world

    This is not only a foot. It is a federated foot.
